- RS232 and USB interfaces
- Multi-purpose I/Os
- Low-power operation (2.7 V to 5.5 V)
- Supports programming and tuning of advanced transponders
- Easy to design in and use
The microreader evaluation board (RI-STU-MRD2) is a complete USB-based reader module providing the hardware and software to communicate with TI's low-frequency (LF), half-duplex (HDX), and advanced transponders for programming and tuning after the production phase. The USB reader-writer stick contains the RI-STU-MRD2 DIL module, which is mounted on an antenna base board with a USB connector and a selection of TI HDX LF transponders. The RI-STU-MRD2 is backward compatible with the RS232 based RISTU- MRD1 reader module.
